We always spend a day at Bikini Beach and Restaurant when we are on the island. The food is amazing and service is just fine. You are on an island and the staff does not rush you, it is the island way. The day we...were there they were under staffed but the service and food was still excellent. Sit back and enjoy the food, drinks, view and beach. Highly recommend. Menu is mixed but on the French style of food, something for everyone. Nice comfortable beach chairs for rent as well, this is the spot.More

Disappointingly long wait to place the order. When it did arrive, we had no utensils and had to waive them down again. Portion size of appetizers were very small. Main meals were typical NA but with a French flair. Unsure whether to give them another...go to redeem themselves. Lovely views from beach and handsome waiters were its best assets.More

English speaking servers explain the dual-language stand-up menu brought to the side of your table. Great salads and entrees. Fantastic chocolate ice cream!

My wife and I had an amazing lunch here. She started with a lovely glass of French champagne. We each had over own fantastic entrees. Hers was the delicious sesame tuna; mine was a fantastic seafood salad which had smoked marlin, marlin pate and shrimps....We finished off this tremendous meal with a sumptuous molten lava cake. Portions were large; food was brilliant and the view was spectacular. We were so pleased dining here and would gladly recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

This location in Orient Beach is well known to frequent visitors. It was destroyed in 2017 and now the new restaurant is very French and upscale. The view. The food. The staff. All excellent.

Our lunch was adequate at best . My burger was well done when I requested rare. My husband had the Mahi-mahi burger that was ground up fish. The service was terrible and when we spoke to the manager, the waitress stood behind us with an...angry look in her face...no apologies just angry! There are so many places to go on Orient Beach. I would advise you to skip thus place!More

When we stay at Orient Beach, Bikini Beach is always at first stop for a drink after a long flight, as well a few beverages throughout the trip. Happy to say that Bikini is open and lively as ever. Nice to come back...

While so many beach restaurants on Orient have been closed during the week, thankfully Bikini has always been open. Oliver is a friendly server and is super fast with drinks and food. You can't go wrong with any of the seafood items, especially the trilogy...of tuna.More

We came to the Bikini for a business meeting - our first contact with an important new client. We made the reservation at their request. Upon arrival, we were greeted with an almost empty restaurant where staff were clearly doing very little, chatting and laughing...amongst themselves with little regard for their clientele. After finally getting some attention, we informed them a reservation was made in our name, and instead of being seated at one of the many empty tables, we were waved off in the general direction of the room without any guidance. None of the tables were set for lunch service so effectively we were to choose an unprepared table amongst all those available. We informed them we were here for a work meeting so needed some calm and shelter from the wind. We were given a table, however once we sat down another server came to open up the wind guard and we were forced to move, not once but twice. Admittedly the food was very good, selection of the menu is plentiful and varied. However we had to usher the waiters to us several times to get any orders in. The wait was also long. Our coffees were ice-cold, clearly having been forgotten on the side of a bar somewhere and given to us as an afterthought. The waitresses themselves gossiped in the corner about us, clearly pointing us out in hushed tones and hiding grins. Needless to say our client was very uncomfortable and our meeting did not go as well as it could have. This being said, the venue is lovely and some of the wait staff were accommodating.More

Many new faces, same very friendly, comprehensive, efficient operation! From beach service to restaurant to bar all wheels roll in the same direction. Great place to sun, eat and enjoy ice cold beer!

They do not have music every night. The French side is not particularly known for the night life. There are places you can go for music and some nightlife, it’s just more prevalent on the Dutch side in places like Maho or... More

You'd be better off going to a beach closer to the airport (assuming you are traveling through PJA). Maho or Mullet would be much closer for you.
